Free Crochet Pattern: Quick Crochet Shell Anklet
I hate shopping.
I am very self-concious of my shape. It is very fourteen-year-old-boy-ish. My attempts at looking “feminine” generally end in me looking “drag.”
I was very proud of myself yesterday. I purchased two cute little Calvin Klein dresses to wear to work. I got them home to find out they are dry-clean only, which is a NO! for a Culinary Arts teacher.
One purchase I am not, and have never been disappointed it, is the purchase of a new pair of Birkenstocks. ^ These are my new Gizeh sandals. As far as Birkenstocks go, I find them to be quite flattering. The pewter color is my favorite kind of neutral.
To celebrate my new purchase I created a crocheted anklet to go with my sandals.
This anklet is so quick to make. It has the look of a delicate macrame project without the painstaking perfection of knots.
Here it is for you to try:
- Size 7 steel crochet hook
- Small amount #10 crochet thread in Ecru
- Variety of conch shells and beads
- My anklet has 5 pewter beads and 4 shells.
*Insert hook in bead from bottom to top. Ch 1. Pull loop on hook wide. Hold hook close to edge of bead. Ch 1.
Ch 3. Or, ch 1 if you would like your beads closer together.
Insert hook in shell from bottom to top. Ch 1. Pull loop on hook wide. Hold hook close to edge of bead. Ch 1. Ch 3.*
Repeat between ** until anklet is the length you would like. Ch 30. Tie off.
Go check out your old bead stash and see what you can find. In five minutes you could have a new anklet too!
